A Sad Day

Today is a sad day. Tristan is officially out of naps. :(

We've been struggling with his sleeping habits ever since we got here, to Arizona. It seemed like he just needed time to adjust, but we were wrong about what he needed to adjust to!  This is especially sad for me, because I still need naps, being pregnant and all. Luckily, Mom is around to keep an eye on him, and Rhydon sometimes too, so if I really need one, I should be able to get one. And if all else fails, he loves the DS we have, and that would get me at least 45 minutes.  And movies have been so rare here, that now they're a special treat and that might get me another 30-45 minutes.

It's not all bad, though.  In two weeks, we will celebrate Tristan's 3rd birthday, and in this family, that means potty training (dut dut duhhhhhh....)!  No naps will make that transition easier, I think.  It also means that in the relatively near future, he will be out of a crib and into a big boy bed, and I've found it nearly impossible to keep my kids in bed for naps once they make that change. So all in all, it all works out.

But I'm still a little sad... ;) :(
